Belgian soldiers have shot a man suspected of being a would-be suicide bomber at Brussels Central Station, officials say. He was shot after reportedly setting off a small explosion and no-one else is believed to have been injured. Prosecutors later said the man had died. They are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. In March 2016, 32 people were killed in attacks on Brussels claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group. According to Belgian newspaper La Libre Belgique, quoting prosecutors, the man who was shot was wearing a rucksack and a bomb belt.


Link to Full Story: Suspected suicide bomber shot at Brussels railway station

Disclaimer: Searched and didn't find it posted yet.



Nicolas Van Herrewegen, a railway sorting agent, said he had gone down to the station's mezzanine level when he heard someone shouting. Media captionNicolas Van Herrewegen saw a man with a suicide belt shout "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great" in Arabic) "Then he cried 'Allahu Akbar' and he blew up a wheeled suitcase," he told AFP news agency. "I was behind a wall when it exploded. I went down and alerted my colleagues to evacuate everyone. He [the suspect] was still around but after that we didn't see him." "It wasn't exactly a big explosion but the impact was pretty big," he added. "People were running away."


So, it seems we have another Islamist Terrorist attack in Belgium (no surprise there I guess). How many times must this occur? In this case, it seems the bomb didn't fully explode, bit more likely just was more a firebomb. The attacker did not get a chance to detonate the belt wither, before the authorities shot him dead. I guess it is a good thing he didn't have a deadman switch.

I searched, saw it listed, clicked on it, and it brought me to the 404 generic page. Perhaps that got fixed by the time I posted it.

No need to be an ass about it.

Mods, rip this down if you feel like it then.

ETA: I just checked the front page (nothing), the recent page (nothing).

Please provide an exact link to the thread, and I will include it here.

Re-read your post. You gave a snarky answer as if someone as new as you knew more about how to post there than someone that has been around for years.


And, I am still awaiting your direct link to the existing thread, so I can post it here for others to comment on. Posting that in your original reply would have been more helpful.

I see, and, FYI, it is in a different forum. ATS does allow parallel stories to be posted in separate forums most times. Especially when one is in the current events forum.

I will leave it up to the mods to decide if they want to 404 this one.

Back on topic:
So, has there been any new developments since this story broke? I have not seen much, but then, I am not infallible.

Do you have any additional new information on this story to post? I ask because I have not heard it, and it seems you might know more than I on this one.

There really was not much to this story. The bomber was thwarted and there was a small fire. No mass deaths or injuries. Thank god huh?
